Not much stitching getting done!

There's more gossiping than stitching getting done in my household at the moment! My visitors are still here and this is their last week....I will really miss them when they are gone. Since we haven't seen one another far almost eighteen months, you can imagine the gossiping we are getting done....along with visiting craft stores!  

So, since the gossiping is outdoing the stitching I don't have much to show, but there is some progress on Life's Simple Treasures as you can see here...




The pale lemon in the scroll is a bit boring to do so I have been making sure that I do at least one thread's length of the lemon before I do any other colour. I know that I'd end up pulling my hair out if I had to do such a huge area of the same colour at the end. Anyone else feel like that about stitching big expanses of the same colour? So the end is in sight for the scroll part of the design and then I can get cracking with the sea-horse which is the bit I'm most looking forward to doing - although I doubt you'll see it for a while!

Anyhoo, I'm off to make yet another cuppa and have a good old natter with my friend....only got a few more days till she's back in the UK, so I've got to make the most of it!

I apologize for not keeping up with the old blog reading. I will get round to reading and commenting on blogs again soon....promise!

Until next time...happy stitching!

It sounds like you're having a great time visiting with your friends! What a perfect idea to reward yourself with some stitching in a fun area after doing a length of the boring solid color first!

You had a fun time !! Your treasure project looks very beautiful:) I too don't like working with same color for a long time; I just wait for the thread to end and then work on some other part and I ensure my thread is not too long for the boring part;)
